The Yo-Zuri Hydro Metal is, in my opinion, one of the best jigs ever produced. Part baitfish, part squid, this little guy drops like a stone and works just as effectively when jigged or cast and retrieved. Maybe it’s the flashy finishes, or perhaps the unique flutter, but I have used Hydro Metals on everything from stripers to pickerel, tuna to lake trout. But as it goes, we all lose lures. I have five precious Hydro Metals remaining. Why not restock you ask? Because Yo-Zuri has discontinued this lure. Why, I don’t know, as I’m not the only one who raves about them.
Now I only use them selectively for fear of getting bitten off or snagged up. One even sits on a shelf in my house as more of a collector’s item. Thousands of lures have come and gone throughout the years and I want to know which ones you miss. Did you have a largemouth plug you’d kill for now? Maybe you have a precious few left. Hey, you never know, maybe your responses will lead to some trading. If you’ve got Hydro Metals laying around, let’s make a deal.
